10 – Fear Street Part Two: 1978 (2021) – Rating: 67/100
Fear Street Part Two: 1978 (titled onscreen as Fear Street 1978) is a 2021 American teen supernatural slasher film. It is the second installment of the Fear Street trilogy after Part One: 1994 – which is also on this list!
9 – The Conjuring 2 (2016) – Rating: 68/100
The Conjuring 2 is the second installment of The Conjuring series, and the third installment in The Conjuring Universe franchise. It’s the best rated movie in the franchise, but we highly recommend watching all the movies about paranormal investigators and authors Ed and Lorraine Warren.
I do love The Conjuring 2, it’s certainly one of the stronger instalments in the series before it starts to tail off thereafter.
8 – Fear Street: 1666 (2021) – Rating: 69/100
Fear Street: 1666 is a nasty, effective slasher. The film manages to excite thanks to an impressive array of young talent, an appropriately suspenseful score, and soundtrack according to many critics.
7 – Hush (2016) – Rating: 69/100
One more American slasher movie on this list, but that’s what Halloween is all about anyways.The movie received positive reviews from critics, who praised the performances and the atmosphere.
6 – Creep (2014) – Rating: 70/100
This movie was filmed as found footage and it was a directorial debut by Patrick Brice. A videographer assigned to record an eccentric client, and… well you probably already know where this is going? Or not? You can find out on Netflix.

Based on a Stephen King’s novel. Do we really need to say more?
4 – Creep 2 (2017) – Rating: 71/100
This is a sequel to 2014 film Creep and in order to avoid spoilers we’ll just say that Creep 2 was also critically acclaimed, with much praise focused on the film’s writing, atmosphere, dark humor, and the performances among the leads. It also has a better rating than the original movie, so that’s definitely a reason to watch both of them.
3 – His House (2020) – Rating: 72/100
The British director Remi Weekes premiered his debut feature film His House to acclaim at the Sundance film festival in 2020. The film won four British Independent Film awards, including best director for Weekes. The eleventh doctor – Matt Smith also stars in this movie, so definitely check it out!

Let Me In is a remake of the 2008 Swedish film Let the Right One In. The film tells the story of a bullied 12-year-old boy who befriends and develops a… Nah, we’re not gonna spoil it.
Although the original Swedish film is still considered to be superior by critics, this one is definitely worth a watch.
